Tyler Ellis

Campus Minister, Christian Student Center, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Even though Tyler Ellis still gets asked, "Are you a freshman?", he has been in ministry to the college-aged generation since 2001 (if you include his three years on staff with Adventures In Missions). He is currently a Campus Minister at University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN where he lives with his wife and three daughters. Tyler's passion for university students can be traced back to time spent doing mission work in Samoa and Australia. Two years overseas was all it took for the nations to grab a hold of his heart and not let go. Only when he discovered the million international students in the United States did he make the connection of reaching the nations (and our 50 states) by reaching the students. Tyler is a member of the Campus for Christ board which plans an annual conference (CampusForChrist.net). He's been a speaker at events held at Cascade College, Southern Methodist University, Lipscomb University, Harding University, Pepperdine University, and Texas Tech University. And for fun, he enjoys playing racquetball and disc golf, traveling, and reading. He is also the author of the award-winning book, 'Question Everything: A fresh way to read the best-selling book of all time.'
